Book Review - The Running Boy
Hi guys, and welcome back to my blog.
The Running Boy is a book by Joel Toombs about a boy named Howie who fights as a soldier in WW1. The story shows how he finds love, and faces the terrors of the wars, being made to do things he really doesn't want to do. The story starts in Whitby, where Howie and his two friends Polly and Freddy watch their home town being bombed, before making up their minds to join the army. However, not everything goes to plan, and Howie is separated from his friends, and faces war alone, although he is two years under age. Will Howie face his fears alone, or set off back home to his family? Now available on amazon, or www.rocketfuelhq.com/joeltoombs. It is also available on kindle, at www.tinyurl.com/kindleTRB. The kindle edition costs £3.60, and a paperback copy is £10.

I love reading and creative writing, and I know that one of the hardest parts of writing a story is coming up with good, realistic, believable characters. So I’ve put together a list of rules to follow when coming up with characters: Rule 1: People aren’t perfect.
